There are update rpms for software, patches and updates for releases
back to 8.0 in most cases.

i loaded SuSE 8.2 on my test computer this weekend and was wondering
what others are going to do as far as keeping their system updated with
newer software.  with Debian i can just do an update/upgrade every
couple of weeks and i stay relatively current.  i would think that SuSE
would be like Red Hat/Mandrake and drop support after a while.  so what
are others doing to stay current or install new software?  are there
other sources that i can point YAST or YOU to that will do this?

i guess i could go to a SuSE version of &quot;apt&quot;, but i think of that as
being &quot;non-native&quot;.  that's not saying i _won't_ use an &quot;apt-rpm&quot; type
of program, just that i had rather use SuSE's package manager.

thanks all,
preston
